New Kindergarten Student Registration/Orientation
5/9/20
We require at least one parent/guardian of each incoming kindergartener to attend. Please plan to attend without children present. This will allow your undivided attention to the important details covered, while allowing your kids to participate in normal Saturday activities under the supervision of another parent or adult.

ISM administrative staff members will be on-hand to receive paperwork and answer related questions. Our Special Programs Coordinator will answer questions about After School International (ASI) and our fresh lunch program. ISM Foundation and ISM Family Connection representatives will also provide information and answer questions.

From 9-10am, parents/guardians will participate in a Kindergarten Orientation led by teachers and administrators in the kindergarten rooms. Then, at 10am, parents/guardians of new kindergarten students will submit their registration paperwork in the Multiuse Room.
